Leeds Rhinos legends Kevin Sinfield MBE, Jamie Peacock MBE, Rob Burrow, Barrie McDermott and Chev Walker have all pledged to take part in the Asda Foundation Leeds 10k in 2019 as part of the Run with the Rhinos team on Sunday 7th July 2019.
The five who have won a combined 47 trophies between them will join Rhinos fans for the annual race as they aim to raise money to support the work of Leeds Rhinos Foundation.

McDermott is a veteran of the Run with the Rhinos team, having participated on behalf of the Rhinos' charity for the last nine years and Walker, who now works on the club's coaching staff, ran with the team in 2017.

Leeds Rhinos Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield MBE headed up the Rhinos team in 2016 and finished his first 10k in 44 minutes 45 seconds. Peacock, who returned to the Rhinos this year to work with the club's commercial team will join his former team mates Sinfield and Burrow in the Run with the Rhinos shirt for the first time and said he is looking forward to the event.

"It will be the first time I have run the Leeds 10k in the Run with the Rhinos team and it will be great to team up with Kev and Rob again for the first time since 2015! Running is something I have grown to enjoy so I am really looking forward to the Leeds 10k which is always a brilliant event and day for the city.

"We hope Rhinos fans can be part of the team alongside us and help us raise money for the fantastic work Leeds Rhinos Foundation do to support people in our community. This is the perfect time of year to set yourself a new challenge and the feeling when you cross the finish line will be worth all the hard work.

"I think there might be a bit of competition among all the former players so make sure you come and run or support the day and you can see which former player finishes last!!

Entry is £30 and there is a required £20 minimum fundraising to Leeds Rhinos Foundation.

Benefits of being a Run with the Rhinos team member include:

• Run with the Rhinos race top to wear on the day
• Training session followed by Peacock's Pasta Party! (to include pre-race nutritional advice from Leeds Rhinos experts) - Date TBC
• Great fundraising incentives
• Exclusive post-race event invite

Following the success of the walking team last year, which was led by Leeds Rhinos Foundation's Vice President Ryan Sidebottom, there will once again be the option to walk the 10k course. So if running isn't for you but you still fancy being part of the team, you can do so by joining our 2019 Walking Team!
